United ‘plot Maddison transfer raid’
Manchester United are preparing to launch a ‘transfer raid’ on Leicester City for their star playmaker James Maddison, according to reports.
The Mirror claims that Maddison – who helped Leicester beat Sheffield United yesterday – is on the brink of the England squad, but also could be subject to an £80million bid from United.
Having already signed Harry Maguire, it would be United’s second raid on the Foxes in a short space of time. MEN Sport understands United held some interest in Maddison in the summer, but prioritised a move for Maguire, as well as keeping Paul Pogba.
It is unlikely that Maddison will be allowed to leave in January, but this is one to keep an eye on.
